These small lil buggers…

Ever had your furnace go out? Haven’t we all?! Well instead of cussing, why not try this simple idea?

What about this- the furnace kicks on and then off in about 2 seconds, and cycles through until it just seems to quit altogether… As the heating repair experts in Boise and Meridian, we want to give you an inside tip. SAVE YOUR MONEY! Clean this little steel rod with some steel wool (#000-ultra fine) and reinstall it. It will take you less than 5 minutes.

Steps to complete this repair yourself:

1. Locate the flame sensor. Usually on the far left or far right side of the burner box/chamber.

2. Remove the screw(s) holding it in.

3. Polish and resurface.

4. Reinstall.

5. Admire your skills! And how much you just saved.

Regular and routine maintenance is so important. And sometimes, just having a technician in your home or place of business can catch things that otherwise might have gone unnoticed.

This article mentions the batteries not operating! Well, we have even run into instances where the alarm didn’t work at all, even with fresh batteries.

Everyone was safe, which is the most important thing!

Like all things, there are better brands and then there are- the best brands. While most contractors will tell you that brand is irrelevant, that isn’t entirely true. There are manufacturers that build better equipment, even if it is installed poorly these brands will last longer than others that were installed sub-standard. We agree with the consensus- right installation is key. BUT, we want to take it one step further: Right installation is right for superior products.

Dirty Filters Cost A Lot of Money…

If you have experienced equipment failure this winter you most likely had someone talk to you about your dirty filters. And more than likely this was probably the cause of some of the problems!

The fact is that air filters do more than just keep your air clean. They also allow the equipment to run at peak performance and peak efficiency by keeping the components inside your heater clean and operational. When the air filter becomes dirty and air is restricted, the fan motor begins working harder and then the heat exchanger has a difficult time staying the proper temperature.

Make sure you are changing your air filters on some consistent basis- no less than twice a year!
